ABOUT LAPOINTE ILLUSTRATION
Catherine LaPointe Vollmer has lived in New York State her entire life. She grew up in the "North Country," the area of the state above the Adirondack Mountains near the Canadian border. She earned her BFA in illustration from Syracuse University, then returned to the North and now designs and prints her artwork from her home studio.
She is a fine artist, a children's book illustrator, and a graphic designer. She enjoys dabbling in many different styles of artwork and always has several projects going at once.
She says, "I have only recently begun to embrace digital design, as well as embracing my New York roots. As far as I am aware, a series of posters that highlight the various regions of New York State in this manner do not exist anywhere else. The state has so much variety to offer, and I am glad to be able to showcase it."
